An organically formed staircase centrally positioned connects the three levels, this zone is meant for movement and communication. The windows are large enough to be considered floor-to-ceiling glass walls, it is an important aspect because the building will be filled with natural light and views from all the city will be captured. In this reading or stay zones the same piece of furniture can be used as a table or bench. Is easy to find a comfortable place on the terrace or inside where you can enjoy reading.
